There’s something achingly familiar about Daniel Grigori.
Mysterious and aloof, he captures Luce Price’s attention from the moment she sees him on her first day at the Sword & Cross boarding school in sultry Savannah, Georgia. He’s the one bright spot in a place where cell phones are forbidden, the other students are all screw-ups, and security cameras watch every move.
Even though Daniel wants nothing to do with Luce–and goes out of his way to make that very clear–she can’t let it go. Drawn to him like a moth to a flame, she has to find out what Daniel is so desperate to keep secret . . . even if it kills her.
Dangerously exciting and darkly romantic, Fallen is a page turning thriller and the ultimate love story.
It’s Luce’s first day at a new school, she has already been striped of her cell phone, flipped off by a cute boy and attacked by a girl and her meatloaf can it get any worse? It can.
I was very excited to get Fallen. You can ask my husband, when I opened the package there was even some squeeing involved. So I honestly wanted to like it, hell I wanted to love it. It just didn’t happen though.
The premise was great. The setting was good. I can relate to the sweltering southern heat. It was the characters and the pace of the story that ruined it for me.
Luce was annoying and for lack of a better word term, dumb. Sure she has some problems but her actions were totally unbelievable to me. She was stocking the male in the book. They were supposed to have this amazing bond that drew them together but I never saw it! There were times I felt like I was missing something because it wasn’t explained and wasn’t there at all. I felt totally unconnected with these characters.
On top of all that the pace was slooow. The story didn’t pick up until about 250 pages into it. We could do without a lot of those pages in the beginning. I will stop here. I don’t like doing negative reviews. I honestly wanted to love this but Kate has a long way to go before I could love her work. I will probably still give the squeal a chance. And I think you all should still give Fallen a chance. This is only my opinion and I seem to be the only person so far that hasn’t loved it. 2 Stars
